Alone in Eden is a fictional work about the eldest son of Adam and Eve before and after the fall in the garden of Eden. Follow his journey through this first-person account of the tragedy of evil and suffering in the wake of original sin and its ultimate consequences. This is an introspective story of good and evil, what could have been and what could still be.

Life in the garden led to few if any questions and little was changed in this regard in the valley. There were no expectations and events simply unfolded. Surprise was virtually impossible because each new day brought with it the glory and wonder of life itself; the beauty and abundance around us simply was. It required no asking or waiting. Such feelings as hunger, thirst, pain, startle, fear, or anger never arose because there was no stimulus to elicit these or any negative responses.
Pastore floods the reader with startling images of beauty that once was and the hopeless void that lingers, threatening to happen. In addition to its profound mystical content, it is a treasury of unforgettable imagery. See Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, even Noah as you have never seen them before. Pastore’s vivid accounts are uniquely described.

A remarkable tale of God’s love and purpose for us all. Rarely does one find a book having such an abundance of beautiful and precise word pictures. A stunning and visually thrilling work of fiction that exercises both your intellect and imagination – and, ultimately, your spirit.
